Name: Tina Gerow. Also write as Cassie Ryan

Website: &

Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a multi published author under two pen names. As Tina Gerow I write paranormal romance with snarky, strong heroines and hunky, kick ass heroes. As Cassie Ryan I write erotic paranormal romance. Still with snarky, strong heroines and hunky, kick ass heroes, but with smokin’ hot and kinky love scenes and out of this world paranormal! 

I live in Phoenix with my two favorite men – my son Darian and my husband Jon, a huge Maine Coon cat (16 pounds of fluffy sweetness) and an adorable black kitten.

When I’m not writing I’m an active speaker and online teacher for a multitude of writing related and motivational subjects.

On the back of my right shoulder. This one is in BAD need of a touchup. The words, which you can barely read now say “Jon & Tina Forever” It was beautiful when it was first done and it will be again soon!

On my right ankle I have this one:




When did you get your first tattoo? I got my first tattoo – the "Jon & Tina forever" one when I was 34, just before my husband and I got married. I wanted a tattoo and didn’t have any idea what I wanted and what I would love long term. When he came up for the idea for that I loved it, and once I saw the design I was hooked!

When did you get your last tattoo?  I sold my first book in 2005 even after being told that only one person in a million gets a book contract. I’m so glad I didn’t buy into that!! I wanted something that represented my dreams coming true, and Tinkerbell fit the bill!

Do you have a favorite? They are both my favorite in their own way. I think once I get the first one touched up and it looks great like it did when I first got it that will go back to being my favorite just because it represents my wonderful husband and I :)

Is there a special meaning behind any of your tattoos? Oops – I guess I put that up earlier….

Are you planning on getting anymore? I would love to get more, but once again, I don’t have any idea what I want or where I d like to get it. I do still have a few spots that won’t sag when I m 80, so I'm good to go once I figure out what I want. I need to get my first one touched up and then look for a third one. I’m waiting for an idea to fall in love with :)

Tell us a little about your book: Why don’t I do a Tina Gerow book and a Cassie Ryan book here… 


Life and circumstances keep pulling soul mates Matt and Sarah apart, but now that Matt has reason to believe Sarah might be in danger, he'll stop at nothing, against all odds, to find her. Can they overcome karma to finally find their happily ever after? **Smokin' hot scenes and sexy situations...

First in a sexy new series featuring four succubus sisters fighting demons and desires.

Jezebeth is living out the centuries as any succubus must-seducing men to survive and corrupting souls to make her quota with her queen, Lilith. But, when she's attacked by a bounty hunter demon, it's a handsome human who saves her.

Noah Halston is a horror writer who owes his life to Lilith. Now he must pay up by eluding the fearsome beasts of hell while escorting a very attractive and tempting succubus safely to Lilith's lair-or else he will forfeit his soul to an eternity of torture.

Trouble is, if he spends too much time with the all too tempting Jezebeth, he may just lose his heart-or, even worse, his life.

Is there anything that you would like to add?

Thank you so much for starting this new blog!  People with Ink get a bad rep sometimes, but authors are in the unique position of having a profession where it doesn’t really matter if we have some cool Ink!  And it’s a really fun idea to see which of us have what and where :)
Thanks for sharing your ink with us Tina!
